Fruit at all times
“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 NLT
God promises us that, if we trust Him our life will not be dry, from our inner will flow “living water”, as Jesus promised in John 7:37-38 also.
Not even the strongest “hot” (understand it as adversity, or anything that can enslave us) may hurt us; and as a green tree always appealing, we will become desired, we can provide shade to the weary and freshness to overcome by the heat .
But something more important is that always, we will give fruit at all times; and we will not do it only by the seasons, our life will be productive always.
